Mustard Bath Recipe

DIY mustard bath to alleviate symptoms of colds, fatigued and achy muscles, fever, congestion and stress!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups magnesium sulfate epsom salts
  • ¼ cup baking soda
  • ¼ cup mustard powder
  • 2 chamomile tea bags or 2 tbsp. of loose tea
  • 6-8 drops eucalyptus essential oil
  • 4-6 drops wintergreen essential oil
  • 6-8 drops rosemary essential oil

Instructions

  1. Place all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well until all lumps are gone.
  2. Add essential oils, mix well and transfer to an airtight jar or canister.

  3. Add a few generous scoops of the mixture (about 1/4 cup) to a hot running bath and soak for at least 15-20 minutes, breathing in deeply. Rinse your body with a little fresh water and pat dry. Be sure to rinse out the tub!

  4. As an option, place a few scoops of the mustard bath mixture into a disposable tea filter and secure with a clip or kitchen string. This will keep your body and tub free from debris.

Recipe Notes

I don't recommend using this mustard bath mixture for small children. Also, make sure you don't have an allergy to any of the ingredients before trying the bath. I have sensitive skin and it was fine for me. Check with your doctor first if you have high blood pressure or any other medical condition.
